At the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest’s first major temporary exhibition in the 2020 season, you can experience the brilliance of ancient Egypt’s golden age with the help of rare finds and a life-size reconstruction of the tomb of pharaoh Amenhotep II. The central theme of the exhibition, “Discover the Pharaoh’s Tomb – Amenhotep II and his age” is the person and empire of the ruler (1427–1401 BC). The exhibition presents his reign throughout several sections, from diverse aspects.
The reconstruction of Amenhotep II’s sumptuous tomb relies on the ample documentation of Victor Loret’s discovery, which is held at the archive of the University of Milan’s Egyptology Programme. The astonishingly adorned tomb both offers a view into the sacral architecture of the sepulchres of Egypt’s sovereigns, and gives a vivid insight into the most important archaeological discoveries in the second half of the 19th century.

The exhibition is on view between 15 April and 26 July.

This exhibition of the Budapest Spring Festival is jointly presented by Müpa Budapest and Museum of Fine Arts Budapest.
